Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction
Chiropractors are trained to correct problems due to poor joint mechanics and joint misalignments. Chiropractic treatment of the TMJ focuses on joint mobilizations, adjustments and soft tissue techniques applied directly to the TMJ and its surrounding musculature. In most cases, TMJ dysfunction is influenced or exacerbated by poor joint mechanics, and tight musculature in the upper back and neck. Therefore, of equal importance, Chiropractic care also focuses on corrections to the mechanics and positioning of the joints in the upper back and neck to relieve symptoms associated with TMJ joint dysfunction.
When these treatments are employed, motion of your upper back, neck and jaw joints can improve and your symptoms such as: ear pain, jaw locking, headaches, and neck pain can be reduced or eliminated.
